15,000 police personnel to monitor A ‘Ibom council poll

“Depending on the total number of registered voters, some polling units will have larger numbers of police personnel,” Elkana said, and that special attention would be given to conflict-prone areas such Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun Local Government Areas, which had experienced serial killings in recent times.

According to him, police helicopters would be deployed for aerial surveillance, adding that marine police, in collaboration with the Nigerian Navy, would take care of the coastal areas. Elkana warned politicians, especially political officeholders, not to go to the polling units with their armed details during the exercise.
